Video description:

Nearly two weeks after his walk-out, the Beatles’ drummer returned to the fold, by now convinced of his value. It took a series of cajoling telegrams, proclaiming his greatness as a drummer, to do the trick, but when he arrived, surely the icing on the cake was the flowers be-decking his drum kit, conceived by George (and executed by Mal). Ringo too had something to offer up: a first draft of his second composition, “Octopus’s Garden,” written while in Sardinia (the demonstration heard here is from months later, of course). September 3, 1968
